Law enforcement officers have cracked down on two lumbering operations.
The first was Friday when the Fuerza Pública said that men in Pocosol de San Carlos were cutting more trees than a permit allowed. They confiscated chains, saws and even a bulldozer.
Sunday the Fuerza Pública in Puerto Jiménez on the Osa peninsula said they found men lumbering in a finca where such activity is prohibited. Police confiscated some sawn timbers and a tractor, they said.
